Casper College Hosts Deaf Expressive Arts Festival – COVID Style
American Sign Language students from Casper College, Kelly Walsh High School, and Dean Morgan Middle School, as well as local deaf community members, will be showcasing a variety of ASL literary forms as well as De’ Via art online as a YouTube Premiere Event Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 6:00 p.m.
The Deaf Expressive Arts Festival — or D.E.A.F., which is in its fourth year at Casper College is a collaborative effort of American Sign Language classes from Casper College (Gail Schenfisch-instructor), Kelly Walsh High School (Maria Paris-Instructor), and Dean Morgan Middle School (Joan Mahnen-instructor). During the event, students will share their love of ASL with the community.
Several of our local deaf community members and students will perform traditional ASL ABC, number and classifier stories, percussion signing, and folklore stories. This intergenerational presentation and sharing of ASL and its culture help build and establish an appreciation of the deaf community and the importance of being global citizens learning diversity through world languages. This first-ever ‘COVID-style’ online event can be viewed by people from a variety of communities just by logging in to watch.”
All of the visual poetry and stories will be interpreted for our non-signing viewers during the festival, which will begin at 6 p.m. at youtube.com/channel/UCF_6ucHSV6NJj7wzG8x_urA.
